  1. Researchers Observe Topological Effects for LightTopology — the understanding of how things are connected — remains abstract, even with the popular example of doughnuts and coffee cups. This concept, esoteric as it appears, is also neat because it is the basis for creating ultra-stable quantum “playgrounds.” In topological systems, certain quantum behaviors can be carefully probed and even harnessed for all kinds of practical applications — from metrology to electronics. Topological insulators, for instance, have garnered attention because they exhibit quantum Hall physics practically off-the-shelf — without the fuss of stringent laboratory conditions.
